Quicken Loans Charity Challenge

When The Greening of Detroit was founded in 1989, our mission was to plant trees to replace the thousands that had been lost to disease and neglect. For nearly 30 years, we’ve done that – nearly 100,000 new trees in Detroit at last count – and so much more. Today, we are setting the stage to “Grow Tomorrow’s Detroit,” and with your help, we will continue to make a difference in the greening of our city.  We hope you will consider supporting our efforts with your donation of $25 or more.   

Quicken Loans will donate $25,000 to the winner of this Charity Challenge. Please help us make that a reality!
